Poor Lena Dunham!

The ‘Girls’ actress and creator has been rushed to hospital reportedly after an ovarian cyst ruptured. 

Taken to an undisclosed hospital today, she is set to undergo surgery according to her reps. 

“Lena Dunham has been very public with her personal bouts with endometriosis. This morning, she suffered from an ovarian cyst rupture and has been taken to the hospital,” Lena’s spokesperson Cindi Gerger told People Magazine.

“Lena will be undergoing surgery at an undisclosed hospital. We thank you for you understanding and hope that Lena’s privacy will be respected.”

Lena has been open and honest about her struggles with endometriosis in the past.



During the recent promotion blitz of season six of Girls, she was forced to pull out for health reasons. 

Penning a letter to her fans, she explained that she was going through a “rough patch” with her health and was advised by doctors to rest up.

“Hey Beloved Pals, I just wanted to let you know that, while I am so excited for ‘Girls’ to return on Feb 21, I won’t be out and about doing press for the new season.

“As many of you know I have endometriosis, a chronic condition that affects approximately 1 in 10 women’s reproductive health.


“I am currently going through a rough patch with the illness and my body (along with my amazing doctors) let me know, in no uncertain terms, that it’s time to rest.

“That’s a hard thing to do, but I’m trying, because all I want is to make season six of ‘Girls’ the best one yet. I’m lucky enough to have support and backup from Jenni [Konner], Judd [Apatow] and the whole Girls gang. So many women with this disease literally don’t have the option of time off and I won’t take it for granted.

“Wishing you all health & happiness, in whatever form suits you. Back soon, xxLena”
